I assembled this instruction sheet above to show how Ukrainian eggs are made. This was necessary to display as an example alongside our ornamental eggs we recently gave to a fun place yesterday called Plantiques ,with hopes of having a few sold.
I have my doubts, but when people see them they are quite gravitated by each egg's unique beauty. The store does unfortunately take 30% of the profit off each item; which means the price on each egg has been put for nearly 20 dollars or so, meaning we get about $15 for each egg sold.
The image above displays some of the eggs the family has done. The one displayed on the far right is one of the eggs being sold at Plantiques.
Curious to know what these eggs are? No, they aren't painted, but are in fact dyed. Here's a Wiki page on Ukrainian (Pysanky) eggs for you to know how they're made and where they originated. They're usually made for Easter, but we make them for Christmas, as ornaments.
One other thing I did was make an ornamental sign for the eggs (below).

You can see the metallic gold in the paper used for the sign; price tag was added by the
store owner of course.
Even more fun news is that we have a custom order for a rooster, which will be a gift when finished.
Hope you enjoyed looking at this fun craft. Stay tuned for more fun projects coming soon. ^.~
